My friend Christiane B. was in Washington DC at the Renwick Gallery, and brought me a copy from the book.
What's nicer than simple quilts?
The ones you would easily use everyday?
Of course, the more intricated patterns are fascinating too, but the escence of quilts are probably four patches and triangles...........
What's your point of view?
The pics of my shiny featherweight are especcially for Lucy in Haarlem. This one has a lovely story: i'm the second owner.I bought this machine from someone in the Netherlands,in nearly to mint condition. Servicing was recorded on the manual and i love to do piecing on this machine.
The lady who owned it before was the aunt of the seller, and she was described as a very talented seemstress.
The noise it makes while sewing is absolutely delicious, it's purring like a cat.
For the rough jobs i use a Bernina 1008, mechanic and very reliable too.
In fact, i hardly bought real quilt fabrics, just a few fat quarters.
We pay a random 18 euros a meter for american fabric, so guess the amount of money for a quilt!
I know i should support quiltshops here in France, but how long can we afford to do so?
I hope that some of you are interrested in a discussion about frugal quilting,i'm sure i'm not alone LOL!
Next thursday i'm invited for luch at a fellow quilter, Marie Claude T
I hope she allows me to take some pictures, her work is simply gorgeous. Will V in Paris, happy quilting ladies!
